From launch, Disney+ will become the exclusive home of Star Originals. Titles streaming on Disney+ in the UK & Ireland include crime thriller Big Sky from visionary storyteller David E.

Robust parental controls

To make sure Disney+ remains suitable for audiences of all ages and the experience parents expect, new parental controls launching on 23 February will include the ability to set limits on access to content for specific profiles based on content age ratings and the ability to add a PIN to lock profiles with access to mature content.

Jan Koeppen, President, The Walt Disney Company EMEA: “Star will be an integral part of Disney+, making it bigger, bolder and even more exciting. The arrival of hundreds of TV series and movies including our exclusive Star Originals will make Disney+ the premier destination for high quality entertainment with something for everyone. Needless to say, all this comes with parental controls to give parents that peace of mind.”

Star on Disney+ will be available in the UK, Ireland, France, Germany Italy, Spain, Austria, Switzerland, Portugal, Belgium, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Iceland plus Australia, New Zealand, and Canada beginning 23 February. Content under the Star brand will vary by market.

And there is expected to be many more shows and movies announced as there will be over 400 titles added to Disney+ via Star on February 23rd and a total of 1000 extra titles to be added within the first year.


It’s important to note that there might be some regional differences in the shows and movies available due to existing deals.

And unfortunately, Disney+ in the United States and Latin America won’t be getting Star, since in the US, Disney has Hulu for this content and in Latin America, Disney is going to be releasing Star+ as its own service, which will also include sports.

What do you think of this lineup of content for Star?

    This is a very, very strong starting list. Yes, there are some big notable omissions such as the Alien films, the Predator films and the first Die Hard. However, I don't really mind that as it leaves some things to look forward to in the coming weeks.

  2. Mando January 28, 2021

    I thought Cleveland Show is coming too.

    1. David Bagshaw January 28, 2021

      Yeah it is. It’s listed within the star logo that Disney+ UK posted on Instagram and at the top of the article.
